The Morgan Hill Library will host free cooking classes led by a professional chef as part of the Santa Clara County Library District’s ongoing effort to promote knowledge of healthy and sustainable food choices and lifestyles.
Two classes each day will take place March 23 and April 6, and both will be led by Chef Scott Davis, known to his fans as “the Culinary Dude.”
At 2 p.m. March 23, Davis will present “Pizza Time,” followed by “Pop Star Favorites” at 4 p.m.
On April 6, Davis will present a “Healthy Meals For Kids” class at 2 p.m., followed by “Sushi Making” at 4 p.m.
A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu-California Academy with a second degree in early childhood education, the Culinary Dude “creates a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that nurtures individual expression and creativity,” said a press release from the library.
The class is open to the public, and no registration or fee is required.
The cooking classes are part of the library district’s “Focus on Food” series, which brings topics related to healthy and sustainable food choices to local libraries. The Focus on Food program series arose from the library’s commitment to providing “interesting, stimulating and relevant programs” to the communities served by the library district, according to library staff.
“The library already provides a wide variety of resources on healthy living, and we are pleased to expand our services with the introduction of the Focus on Food series,” Santa Clara County Library joint powers authority board Chair Gilbert Wong said.
The Morgan Hill Library is located at 660 W. Main Ave.
